Summary: Wow! I couldn't agree less with the Gamezebo reviewer: "What's worst about this is that with few traditional puzzles and little narrative, the game becomes roughly ninety percent hidden object sequences." What the.......? How is having 90% hidden object sequences in a HIDDEN OBJECT GAME suddenly a problem? I wish that EVERY game sold as a HOG actually WERE 90% hidden object sequences!
Summary: I think this deserves 4 stars - it isn't that long, but its a fairly nice adventure HOG. I found none of the puzzles very hard, but the storyline was engaging enough and nothing was frustrating to do. Definately well worth a play.
Summary: I really love this game, but for one thing, the hateful marble poppers! They´re killing me, making my mouse arm so much worse. I play slowly and carefully in order not to make it worse, but with the marble poppers that´s not possible. I absolutely agree with Kitkat, Why is there no skipmode!!
Summary: This game was a pleasure to play. In fact, I found myself skipping some of the puzzles in order to get on with the stories. I plan to play it again in order to complete all the puzzles. I too enjoy a UK accent and especially love the serene rhythm of the game. I got stuck a few times, but I just needed to back up a few screens and see what was sparkling now. All around a great little game and another winner from BFG. They have come up with some real gems lately.
Summary: I like just about everything in this one--the intro is artfully done, the soundtrack is really good, and the overall graphics are certainly high-caliber! One minor disappointment--no cursor choice--the game one is OK, but a bit sluggish. Good voice acting--once again, British accents, but I rather like that. Keep the speakers on so you can just make out the "hush-hush" whispers in the background.
Summary: I found that the HOG sites were well drawn and not overcrowded with unnecessary "junk". I occasionally had to use a "hint" on one well-hidden item at the various sites. I appreciate the fact that the HO items were mostly appropriate to the sites: lab items in the lab, kids toys in the playroom. Too many times I find that the HO's have no relation to where they are placed.
Summary: I must preface with you best really REALLY like Hidden Object games because this is pretty much what it is. HOWEVER, the well-drawn items are not that easy to find which adds to the fun of this game. There was not alot of traveling from here to there because the so-called travelling was kept in the proximity of where you are/were currently.
Summary: I am somewhat of a newbie to computer games. My very first purchase was Bejeweled and I got tired of that one after awhile. The second purchase was Escape: Whisper Valley. The third was Escape: Rosecliff Island. This is the fourth game that I have downloaded. I loved it at first and have played it several times, but I keep my sound off because that 1920s music drives me crazy. Maybe it's because it's from my parents' generation, but it's OK without the sound.
Summary: I haven't read the The Great Gatsby; however, I read the synopses of the novel and the game is model after the novel. This is a fairly easy HOG for the novice players. I truly enjoyed the story telling of the game, and it have motive me to the read the novel.
